mod_evasive maneuvers module for Apache to provide evasive action in the event
of an HTTP DoS or DDoS attack or brute force attack. It is also designed
to be a detection and network management tool, and can be easily configured

reports abuses via email and syslog facilities.

Detection is performed by creating an internal dynamic hash table of IP

* Requesting the same page more than a few times per second
* Making more than 50 concurrent requests on the same child per second
* Making any requests while temporarily blacklisted (on a blocking list)

You'll need to add the following line to your /etc/httpd/httpd.conf file:
Include /etc/httpd/extra/mod_evasive.conf

To test enter the following command:
perl /usr/doc/mod_evasive-$VERSION/ | more
which should output some HTTP/1.1 200 OK lines; then HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden

mod_evasive is fully tweakable through the Apache configuration file, see
the README file in the package's documentation directory.
